My DVD Player is stuck in profressive scan mode and I can't get it to the menu to change it. Anytime I put a disc in and turn it on, the screen goes blue and says progressive scan mode. It won't let me do anything. Does anyone have any solutions?

Trun the DVD player on till you see the "progressive scan" screan. Hold the "stop" botton down for 5 seconds and the unit should reset to standard DVD play.

Worked for me, good luck.

Picture is split -- says P-SCAN. It's stuck


that means it is stuck on progressive scan.  If your tv is not able to handle progressive scan, you need to change it back or reset the player.  
The DVD player may be set to Progressive Scan Mode. You will need to change it to Video Mode by using the remote control. Point the remote control directly at the DVD player, and then press the PSCAN button 2-3 times. If you are still encountering problems with the DVD player, reset the unit back to the default setting.

To Reset,
Make sure you do not have a disk in the tray. Using the DVD player remote control: 1) Press the “Setup” button. 2) On the “Down” arrow, press it three times. 3) On the “Right’ arrow, press it once. 4) On the “Down” arrow, press it three times. 5) On the “Right” arrow, press it once, then press “Enter”. 6) Press the Setup button. *The default setting will take affect as soon as you press the setup button (step 6).
Hope it helps..please rate!

Progressive Scan


Hold the stop button for about 10 seconds. The other thing to do is move the video out cable at the back of the DVD to one of the component outs (there are three of them one for each color rgb) you will be able to read the menu again. turn off progressive scan and reconnect the video cable to dvd out

DVD player wont show picture


to turn it off select connection method 3 above and progressive scanning mode, to set the mode, set progressive to off in the display menu so that the p scan indicator light on the front panel goes out. do all of this in interface mode. you can also do this by pressing and holding PLAY > on the front of the unit for more than 5 seconds, still watch for the p scan indicator to go off. this works best when the unit is connected directly to the television.
